Stadhouderskade 1, Amsterdam, Holland

Pieter Lucas Marnette
Date Built
This protected building on Stadhouderskade, featuring an Amsterdam School Movement design, was flying the flag of the retailer Tommy Hilfiger when I took these images in 2015.  However, it was built between 1921 and 1923 as the headquarters of the Gemeentetram GTA, a tram company formed when the Amsterdam Omnibus Company was nationalized.  The building consists of a central block with two corner pavilions.  The rear of the building faces onto a canal.

Since the tram company moved out, the building has been home to other companies including the brokers CBRE and now Tommy Hilfiger.
